BTW I should add, if your item was placed at ourmedia.org (whose files are stored at archive.org) as opposed to say, Open Source Audio (which is an actual archive.org collection here), it may be better to contact someone through Ourmedia's site instead, as there are different curators for that whole separate project. (But I think curation for their items may be set up to send the same kind of "Internet Archive curator" form letter as on IA's own collections.)

I'm not so familiar with that site so I can't say what the best way to call attention is. Maybe use the "report abuse" link, or some other "contact us" link there? I think they have an info*ourmedia*org email address too. Leaving an error report over here may be a less-good way for OM after all.

I'm guessing a moderator thought that your item had rights issues. Looking at the text you submitted for it, there isn't any indication that it's your work. In the future, you may want to include that.

At any rate, it's been put back up.

Thank you... I uploaded though Ourmedia and listed the creator of the works as myself and the creative commons license rightowner as myself also... I assure you it would not serve any ligitimate purpose for me to post other artists plagarized works... thanks again for the rapid responses.

I'm always astonished by the amount of pop tunes for instance that users choose to mark "public domain" or with some inappropriate CC license after they ripped them from a commercial CD or purchased them from a d/l service, and then slapped up at OM or IA. So a little extra text descrip can go a long way to helping disambiguate your "real" stuff from all that mess! Plus, a good description can also make more people want to check out your compositions.

EDIT: Found a related topic over there:
http://www.ourmedia.org/node/159106
(that also mentions the likelihood of stuff they're unsure about getting darkened by accident, and an appeal mechanism)

Also, to cut down on the underlying problem that leads to some accidents: http://www.ourmedia.org/node/220406

I think the problem was you uploaded it through ourmedia. That has to be the worst interface ever. All the licensing information, author, uploader, even the file types are lost when creted here. You have to go into every item and put your name in as creator, re enter all the keywords etc... none of it comes over so the mods here did not see it was an original CC licensed work becaue it's in the meta under custom fields because someone at ourmedia does not understand how to match field id's... so it was not censorship or archive's fault. It was ourmedia's intereface. The reverse is true also, anything uploaded here an created there is listed as public domain and has comments deactivate. Lastly, if you add jpg to the item here, that is the file that transfers to the node at ourmedia so your song will be a picture over there...

toodles!
